Visual Studio is amazing, it keeps getting better and better for each release. However, the Visual Studio installer can be a little bit unintuitive.

Yesterday I cloned a repo and the solution was a newer one and required .NET version 4.6.2. I thought I already had that installed, but Visual Studio seemed unable to find it. I downloaded it, was told it already existed, but the option was still missing from the options. Same with 4.7.

Turns out you have to go through Visual Studio installer and enable 4.6.2 and 4.7 first. The versions will then be available. Ahh… okay.
